March 22 (UPI) -- After lighter conversation topics about Jon Bon Jovi's seemingly ageless good looks, his band's longevity and his rock star lifestyle, Katie Couric asked the 51-year-old Bon Jovi frontman about his daughter's shocking heroin overdose last November.

"Worst phone call ever," Bon Jovi said about learning that his 19-year-old daughter, Stephanie Bongiovi, had been taken to the hospital after a heroin overdose in her dorm room at Hamilton College in New York.

"She's doing great," Bon Jovi said of his daughter. "The problem is much more prevalent than I knew," he said. "I cannot get over how many people I've met that said 'my son' or 'my daughter.'"

"There is a lot of pressure on kids these days," he said.
